time, name and time if you wish to opine. do not be a martinet. remember, the spin stops right here, because we are definitely looking out for you. sean: unemployment stands at 10.2%. the stimulus bill has not done a job of denting that number, so president obama has decided to take things into his own hands. what has he decided to move to give another speech. tomorrow's jobs summit, a hollow effort to demonstrate that he cares about it. but the president has not exactly set politics aside. the u.s. chamber of commerce, which represents nearly 3 million businesses, will not be present at tomorrow's summit. they were not invited. you will also remember that the chamber came under attack for
proposing tax and tax an independent business also left off of the list, and that is a good indication about the fight to create jobs. newt gingrich was taking the president on directly. earlier this evening, he held what he was calling it real jobs summit. cutting payroll taxes, abolishing the capital gains and estate taxes altogether. joining me now with much more on all of this is the author of the new book "rediscovering god in america," which, by the way, his wife did all of the photography, mr. speaker, welcome back. >> we actually had a real job creators year, unlike the obama summit. we have that people who created real jobs, who are real manufacturers. the travesty tomorrow is that i
do not believe there is a single small business that is going to be at that summit, and yet, small businesses create three out of every four new jobs. sean: the only new jobs we see being created are government jobs. what does it mean that his projections for job growth, which would not go above 8% unemployment if we passed the stimulus, otherwise we faced a catastrophe, what does that say about his stimulus plan? as it failed? >> of course, it has failed. the stimulus plan was a politician pay off to other politicians, and it allowed some to avoid hard choices and wasted an enormous amount of money while creating virtually no jobs. the fact is there was a steady at the american enterprise institute that indicates this is the worst administration and american history at appointing people who had any kind of private-sector experience -- there was a study.
only 8% of the senior appointees have a private-sector background, so you have folks trying to sit around in a room at the white house who have never created a single job, talking about job creation as if they know what they are doing, and instead, they are having a job killing effect. their energy tax is a job killer. their health plan is a job killer. and this will become the worst job killing administration, i think, in american history. sean: cap and tax, the national federation of independent businesses, they are excluded. why would you exclude them? why? because they are against some of your policies? is that the inclusion that the president talked about? >> there is something strange about this president, which goes back to his fight with fox news, which was equally childish and
foolish. if you want to bring the entire country together, then you have some obligation to allow people to criticize you entered the room, and you have some desire to listen to them. united states chamber of commerce is important. the other is the largest business organization of small businesses in america. to try to have a jobs creation summit without the two of them would be tried to have a pro football meeting without the nfl. it would not make any sense -- would be like trying to have a pro football meeting without the nfl. sean: something interesting has happened. quinnipiac, zogby, rasmussen, gallup, below 50%. paris has them at 43% approval rating, some of the lowest ratings he has ever had -- harris. others are saying new jobs and creating jobs is more important than health-care reform, and
they stopped short of threatening their vote on health-care reform, but is this the beginning of democrats abandoning the president because they want to save their jobs, on health care, specifically? >> you have several things happening to the president, all of them bad. the fact is, when you are at 10.2% unemployment, and you do not have a clue what you are doing, the country begins to think you do not know how to lead and that you do not know reality. when you spend all of your time trying to spend eight giant energy tax that will kill america, trying to spend -- trying to have a giant energy tax that would kill america, people just think you do not get it, so he is actually suffering from a reality problem, not a communications problem. in the real world, people are frightened about their jobs, and they do not feel he knows what is going on. sean: all of the things that you
laid out and just mentioned are things that i think would jump- start employment and real job creation and entrepreneurship, but all of the incentives are being taken away from small business. i have in front of me an article that just passed the wires. the headline is "gingrich praises obama on afghanistan." a difficult decision that took considerable courage, because it was split his supporters, and i hate to disagree. i will lay out my case, and then i want you to adjust eva surry me and tell me where i am wrong. >> i will not just in disarray you -- and then i want you to investor rate -- take me apart. sean: he says he is going to pull the troops out in 18 months, does not put the
emphasis on victory. it seems to me that what is representative of his entire career is threading the needle and voting present instead of singing we are going to be in this to win it and that we will give them the truth is that any -- instead of saying we are going to be in this and win it. tell me why he deserves praise? >> i do not think you are wrong about what you just said, but calista and i watched that speech last night. i am an army brat. my father spent over 20 years in the infantry, and i know that the young men and women who are sitting there as cadets, who are going to risk their lives for this country, when like occasionally for politicians to find a way to get together. the one area of applause is when he said, "shirley, we should find a way to work together." -- "surely."
i think president obama may be only did 65% of what he should have done, but i think if you are a left-wing candidate, who defeated hillary clinton with the support of the anti-war left, and you walk into the u.s. military academy to give a speech announcing a 30,000 troops increase, and knowing that your left is going to savidge you, and they started it last night -- knowing that your left is going to savage you. sean: he said during the campaign, "this is a war we must win," and he appointed general mcchrystal. if he did anything, i think he announced to the enemy when we are pulling out. "wait 18 months." >> you were right on several issues in 2008, and i was wrong, so i am going to go out on a
limb. i do not believe they are going to pull out in 18 months. i believe in 2012, there will still be troops in iraq and in afghanistan, and i frankly believe with general jones as the national security adviser that they are afraid they have a very realistic sense that they are in for the long haul. sean: all right, that jobs summit continues tomorrow. i hope for the sake of our troops that we have enough troops there to support them. at the jobs summit in mississippi, and we will continue to follow. mr. speaker, thank you. a lot more news to cover tonight. a look at what is coming up straight ahead, right here on "hannity." >a voicemail forces tiger woods to own up to the truth, but is his apology enoughthe4 climatega -- is his apology enough prh?
gave money to the obama campaign -- new documents. they were talking about targeting one swing district in oklahoma, one held by republicans. and when my symptoms-the coughing, wheezing, tightness in my chest came back- i knew i had to see my doctor. he told me i had choices in controller medicines. we chose symbicort. symbicort starts to improve my lung function within 15 minutes. that's important to me because i know the two medicines in symbicort are beginning to treat my symptoms and helping me take control of my asthma. and that makes symbicort a good choice for me. symbicort will not replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. and should not be taken more than twice a day. symbicort contains formoterol. medicines like formoterol may increase the chance of asthma-related death. so, it is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on other asthma medicines. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. i know symbicort won't replace a rescue inhaler. within 15 minutes symbicort starts
to improve my lung function and begins to treat my symptoms. that makes symbicort a good choice for me. you have choices. ask your doctor if symbicort is right for you. (announcer) if you cannot afford your medication, astrazeneca may be able to help. sean: tiger woods' early-morning car crash has unleashed a
personal drama for the call celebrity. rumors had swirled that the crash was somehow related to extra marylander affair, and those rumors seem to be confirmed when the falling on the tip was provided to the magazine "us weekly." she said it was a voice mail from woods, warning that his wife would be calling her. >> it is a tiger. -- is tiger. sean: all right, woods is not denying that he had an affair, and he issued this statement on its web site.
-- on his website. joining me with reaction and much more is the author of the number-one bestseller, michelle malkin. should this be an issue? should people be concerned of the life of a celebrity, tiger woods? >> well, this is the perfect storm of tabloid hell, and i take no pleasure in having to talk about it, and i certainly agree with tiger woods in his statement today that personal matters should not be the subject of public press releases, but, unfortunately, he happens to be one of the most famous and richest and most talented people in the world. people have been longer interested in his life, from the time he was a child, -- people
have been interested in his life. it is newsworthy. i feel very, very sad. i feel a lot of empathy for his wife, his children, the rest of this to, and i do hope that some exercise of restraint will finally be shown, but when have we ever seen that, sean? sean: i have had the same feelings you have that. i have always admired the way he has handled himself. it seems common with athletes. women throw themselves at him. and he is the one who went to the altar and said he would be faithful and forsake all over, so you cannot really blame the women, can you? -- forsake all others. >> everyone in this exercise is their free will, and if you take him at his word and his press release -- exercises their free will, his wife is really the wrong one here, -- wronged one
here. you look at this beautiful woman who has borne him two children, and as a mother and a wife, i can say, "how could you do that?" we see this not only in the sports world but in other areas, john ensign, larry craig. this is certainly not a partisan matter, and, you know, you have said many times, sean, with a very compassionate voice on this that none of us are flawless. none of us are without fault, and we are certainly not trying to throw stones here or casting judgment, but, you know, he wonder how different it would be of tiger woods' own father was still alive, a huge, import more figure in his life, who is no longer around. sean: that is a great question.
on "jay leno," with hugh grant, the first question was, "what were you thinking? " they were not. -- "what were you thinking?" they were not. i have met people in our business whose egos are way out of control, he and i think they forget that they are kind of blessed to be in this business. politicians, athletes, it seems to be more common there -- egos are way out of control, and i think they forget they are kind of blessed. >> people lose a sense of where they come from, and when they become drunk on their own power and fame and fortune, they think of themselves as supermaen, and, apparently, he thought all of these sleazy women who were throwing themselves at him were
not going to turn around and exploit it, and i hate hearing about these things in the tabloids. sean: he had to have known that these strange women, someone was eventually going to leak it. i guess the question is, does he now deserves some distance from this? does he deserve some privacy even though he is this a big private -- public figure, or is all of this fair game? >> well, i think we have to acknowledge that, in fact, it seems he has gotten a couple of breaks here. the police department seems to have backed off and let it go. they are not going to pursue it any further, and i think the people that deserve the most consideration are the wife and children, and i hope that all of those photographers and journalists will hear that. sean: all right, michelle malkin, we appreciate it. and the heads are beginning to roll in the massive climate-
i have asthma. and when my symptoms-the coughing, wheezing, tightness in my chest came back- i knew i had to see my doctor. he told me i had choices in controller medicines. we chose symbicort. symbicort starts to improve my lung function within 15 minutes. that's important to me because i know the two medicines in symbicort are beginning to treat my symptoms and helping me take control of my asthma.
and that makes symbicort a good choice for me. symbicort will not replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. and should not be taken more than twice a day. symbicort contains formoterol. medicines like formoterol may increase the chance of asthma-related death. so, it is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on other asthma medicines. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. i know symbicort won't replace a rescue inhaler. within 15 minutes symbicort starts to improve my lung function and begins to treat my symptoms. that makes symbicort a good choice for me. you have choices. ask your doctor if symbicort is right for you.

sean: and the scope of the massive climate-gate scan is growing tonight. now, -- scandal is growing tonight. it was shown that scientists attempted to hide evidence disproving man-made global warming, and now the director of the climate research unit at the university of one organization is stepping down, phil jones, and penn state is investigating
one of their own, as they are looking at michael mann as pertains to exaggerating climate-change data. will president obama still support a radical agenda when he is in copenhagen next week? joining me now to respond is sandra smith from the fox business network, and ms. wallace. first of all, very little media coverage. why? >> this is one of the strangest stories i've ever seen, and if i were to give advice to barack obama on the trip, it would be to scrap it. this whole debate on climate change has been tainted. i think for the movement to proceed at full speed, when you look at these serious, serious allegations, it would be insanity. >> i disagree with that.
i do not think it should put something on the whole copenhagen issue. they were basically say there is no separation between the political debate and the scientific debate, and possibly it should not put an end to copenhagen altogether, but this raises serious questions in copenhagen. perhaps that is what needed to happen. sean: the largest scientific scandal in our lifetime. i mean, they are purposefully manipulating data, but there is a question i think our audience needs to answer. why cover this up? why lie? what is the motivation? i have my theory, but what is yours? >> there was, as the prosecution of the bush white house when there was a fear or an allegation that documents were distorted in the other direction, and a whole lot of attention was paid to back, and i think is fascinating that so little attention is being paid to this. i am not a scientist.
i believe that this debate is still attached to the scientific debate. -- so attached to the scientific debate. sean: why cocvecerver up? why lie? you think it is about money? >> the hassett documents from philip jones -- the hacked documents from philip jones, he was getting money, and it kept pouring in. sean: you both are close, but i think i have the answer. there is a political component to this. it is all about politics. this is about capitalism is evil. capitalists want to rape and
pillage the plant for profit, and it is a socialist agenda -- the planet for profit. >> that is a good theory, and the peril for this white house is according to gallup for the first time since 1985, a majority of the american people think it is a higher priority to do good things for our economy than to make environmental concerns and a high priority, so the american people are no longer with the extremists in the obama administration. sean: look at cap and tax, and you follow this closely. we are going to force manufacturing overseas. we will be outsourcing everything, and we will not be building anything, so they are going to use this phony science to jump-start their agenda of redistribution. >> and then the money pours in. look at broke california.
green initiatives. they have no right to be doing that right now. as the political momentum continues, the money keeps pouring in. sean: we would actually go through scientists, climatologists that set a global warming was a hoax. no one was paying attention the couple of years we were doing this. where does this movement now go? how do they recover from this? >> there are some responsible business voices in the middle, and they have suggested looking at things like nuclear power, but which is very green. but the environmentalists have always had so much control in that part of the debate that that has been subverted. maybe we will see smart technologies, really center on that, which does good things for our economy. sean: al gore, not flying around on his private jet, and these countries -- companies are making a huge profit.
he has his own company. a private jet. >> the price tag is eventually going to get people to back off of this, and economists say it is going to cost 2% to 5% of global gdp for a solution. sean: all right, guys, thank you so much for being with us. we have a lot more coming up on "hannity." with us, our next guest coming up, and it was said that barack obama lied in his speech at west point and is calling on congres
the same treatment given to george w. bush? during his eight years in office, he was relentlessly trashed in the press. there was columnist rosa brooks who wrote that president bush and dick cheney should not be treated as criminals who deserved punishment but as psychotics who need treatment. it did not stop there. others accused george w. bush of being a war criminal, and if you do not believe me, take a look at this exchange on "the view." >you demonize as president. >> he is. he should be tried at the hague. sean: what a fun day that was. with us is an author, one to make you think he was the -- >> good to see you, my friend.
that was constant since about 2001. sean: george bush was not perfect. i had my areas of disagreement, but on the issue of war and security, i think he was a great wartime president. >> i do, too, and the case i make in the book is that after john kerry lost, the left, they decided that instead of saying the war was wrong, they had to say, "we are losing it," and beating the drum was going on right up until the time we were winning. and we see the results. look who is in the white house. sean: the surge will fail. of the war is lost. john kerry accused our troops of terrorizing women and children -- the war is lost. these guys are out there fighting every day, and you sort of chronicle all of these.
>> let's see if they were right or wrong, when there were condemning bush, condemning the war, claiming the war was lost -- when they were condemning bush. of course, they were wrong. it was a drive-by shooting. the accomplished the goal they wanted to accomplish. the left wanted someone in new was not bush, and the guide to tap into it the best was barack obama -- the left wanted someone new who was not bush, and the guy to tap into it the best was barack obama. sean: general petraeus, saving his country, to "general betray us." >> no one would dare say these kinds of things about pretorius, -- petraeus s, they would not sy
the words, because they knew it was garnier treason, but they got somebody else to do it for them, and they were happy it was said. sean: this letter to president obama from michael moore, he says, "let me be blunt. we love our kids in the armed services, but we [bleep] hate these generals." these generals, general petraeus, have dedicated their lives to the safety of the country. why was there not more media coverage in the mainstream media on this? >> because they were generally on the left side of this. general petraeus should have been the general of the left. he came up with a counterinsurgency manual. he would have been the left's guy, but because he was taking orders from george bush or
agreed to, they thought he was the devil. he was a target. sean: first, i will run this tape of one man, the so-called nbc conservative, and then your comments on keith olbermann which were pretty hard hitting. let's roll the tape. >> it is not just movie stars that are suggesting that george bush is running our credibility at home and abroad. they said they were embarrassed he was from texas. well, i am embarrassed that he is in the united states. the president is an idiot. that is, no doubt, a sentiment that is shared. so is the president intelligence? is he a brilliant president or someone who just surrounds himself with brilliant people? >> look, the weird thing about what went on between 2004 and
2008 is that the three leading voices on the left was a comedian, jon stewart, and then a sportscaster. nbc let him run wild. i worked there for awhile. i could not figure out how what he did conform to the nbc's standards. sean: who let him get off of the men'ds? >> they had 10 years of failure. this is the first thing that worked, and they said, hey, it is working of the look at, let him go, and they happily ran to the left if he could get them a few numbers. sean: you a personal stories about him. -- you have personal stories about him. >> well, i worked there during the clinton-radinsky thing, and he did not like the story and did not want to go in and do this story -- the clinton-monica
and when my symptoms-the coughing, wheezing, tightness in my chest came back- i knew i had to see my doctor. he told me i had choices in controller medicines. we chose symbicort. symbicort starts to improve my lung function within 15 minutes. that's important to me because i know the two medicines in symbicort are beginning to treat my symptoms and helping me take control of my asthma. and that makes symbicort a good choice for me. symbicort will not replace a rescue inhaler for sudden symptoms. and should not be taken more than twice a day.
symbicort contains formoterol. medicines like formoterol may increase the chance of asthma-related death. so, it is not for people whose asthma is well controlled on other asthma medicines. see your doctor if your asthma does not improve or gets worse. i know symbicort won't replace a rescue inhaler. within 15 minutes symbicort starts to improve my lung function and begins to treat my symptoms. that makes symbicort a good choice for me. you have choices. ask your doctor if symbicort is right for you.

that's why we created the tide "loads of hope" program, a free laundry service that provides clean clothes to families affected by disasters.

[ female announcer ] you, too, can help families affected by disaster by purchasing yellow-cap tide. together we can provide loads of hope. sean: and on our great, great american panel, he is known as the founder of overnight polling, and a former lapd detective mark fuhrman is here, and he is one of the -- forget one of the, the most successful
football coach ever, lou holtz is with us. all right, athletes. they have, i do not know what it is -- this does not happen in the talk radio business or the talk television business, but athletes, it is common that the women are waiting outside when they are coming out of the locker room after a game. they are waiting outside their hotel room. tiger woods is just the latest in a series of athletes, politicians. >> i thought it all the time as a coach. no. -- i thought to -- fought it all of the time as the coach. sean: your wife is going to get you when you get home. >> they think they are invisible. i know where you are going with tiger woods, and i would just say this. i know him p.m. he is a class act.
people can just say, what can i learn from this to make my life easier in the future? -- i know him. he is a class act. sean: we can learn from other players mistakes. did you advise your players out to deal with these women who throw themselves at them? >> sure. you talk about date rape and everything. do the right thing. it is the right thing, and you do the right thing, you have nothing to worry about. sean: mark fuhrman, you see this a lot. >> tiger woods, he is in another class. you grow up. your dad teaches you how to play golf, and what else do you do but play golf? he is a good guy. he gets back on law and does a lot of charities. he is incredibly private -- he gives back a lot and does a lot of charities. just because he is almost a
billion there does not mean he does not have problems in his own life. -- just because he is almost a billion there -- billionaire. sean: does this hurt his business, endorsements? >> i think it does hurt his business endorsements. if he had, sean, come out in the beginning, either alone or with his wife to say, "we have got problems, but they are our problems. let us work through our problems." >> let's not pass judgment on somebody else. let him have his privacy. sean: all right, i'm going to start with you on this one. this is from the ap. sobbing when describing anguish about no longer having contact with the obamas after finding
that she was here illegally, barack obama is's aunt. -- barack obama's aunt. what are the liberals only generous with other people's money? -- why are they? >> his job is to help america, and i think we can criticize him justifiably, on how the hand of afghanistan, but these family issues, where he said he is going to try to reconnect with his aunt -- sean: we get all of the time were liberals say we are selfish. why cannot a president to believes in redistribution not help his brother that is starting in kenya? >> let's go to tiger woods. if we do not want to live the private life of tiger woods, we should not live the private life of the president, either. sean: lecturing us on how we need more skin in the game, for example, redistributing wealth.
should not that generosity start with him? >> you know, i cannot preach to him. sean: that is what this show is about. >> to make a decision on what his relationship was, we do not know what it was for the last 30 years, so it might be impossible to reconnect. it might be something that is not repairable. sean: coach? >> i would just like to think that maybe we held our family. that is your obligation. we do we help our family. that issue obligation. -- i would just think that maybe we would help our family. sean: you get to throw the football tonight. we will continue more with our great american panel. come on, coach. >> thank you so much. >> thank you so much. sean: you have got to thro
sean: and we continue now with our great american panel. i watched the president last night, and i saw retreat. coach, what did you see? >> i saw an individual who did not know exactly what he wanted to do, marching down the middle. putting troops in, and then we have to pull them out. i do not think you say when you win. you just make a commitment. you go into wit to win. whatever it takes, you do what ever it takes to win, period -- if you go into it to win. >> the political consultants say to balance the right by saying you are putting in terms, balance the left by saying, you are pulling them out, we are
going to close guantánamo -- by saying you are putting in troops. what the coach said is exactly right. you have to get clear objectives, state them, and say you are going to remain an unbending until you achieve them. sean: al qaeda, we are, in 18 months, if i were them, i would go into hiding and come back out in 18 months. >> in this speech, all i heard is what russia did. they were there 10 years, in july 1987, they declared they were in an exit strategy. it took them approximately 18 months, and they said that they would trade at the security and military forces to takeover where we are left off -- they would train the security and military forces to take over where we left off. >> how about being an american? how about doing what is in the
best interests of the country? you are the leader, and you have to set the right example and the right leadership. forget about what is politically correct. i get so tired of it. sean: doug, as much as they are opposing the president, because they wanted him to announce a withdrawal last night, so they are mad at him. >> they are taking out their concern over funding. a democrat had a good idea today. he said war bonds. let's americans invest in the war effort. the state of israel does that, how it raises a lot of their money. sean: so not a war tax, as david obey suggests? when you support that? >> absolutely. i learned more in the army than i ever did in a classroom. >> is not a bad idea to have national service and ask people
to commit themselves to core american values, as the coach said -- is not a bad idea. we would be a better country -- it is not a bad idea. sean: when they take a guy like me for one year? not like me, out of shape. >> i am not even qualify to say this, but i am going to say it because i hear it. exit strategy. we should be doing the same thing we did in south korea. we still have thousands of troops in germany and south korea and all of the world. why? because we are maintaining the structure of the society that we help them create. sean: america has paid the price, the blood, sweat, tears be a we have pared to the burden for the cost of freedom around the world -- blood, sweat, tears. we have bared the burden.
>> there is an assault we can face from terrorists at home. sean: does barack obama is get that? i did not sense that, but at least he talked about terror -- does barack obama get back? >> there are problems, and they are difficult. you have to recognize it before you do anything about it to try to solve it. sean: thank you, guys. i want to send you to my website. the 2010 freedom concert coming up, and this year, which the charlie daniels, michael w. smith, lynyrd skynyrd, and all of the benefits benefits in the freedom alliance scholarship, all proceeds going to them, a scholarship fund for the children of slain heroes, and hannity.com is the only place you can
